Tales From the Ur Bar

The first bar, created by the Sumerians after they were given the gift of beer by the gods, was known as the Ur-Bar. Although it has since been destroyed, its spirit lives on—in each age there is one bar that captures the essence of the original Ur-Bar, where drinks are mixed with magic and served with a side of destiny and intrigue.


My short story 'The Fortune Teller Makes Her Will' (title courtesy of the talented elisem) is to appear this March in the collection Tales from the Ur Bar, edd. Joshua Palmatier and Patricia Bray. It's a fantastic line up, and I am delighted to be included. I loved writing this story -- it's set in my favourite time and place (17th century Paris) and let me play with one of my favourite historical mysteries (the Poisons' Affair). There's a lot more information about the project on its website here. Go look: it's going to be a wonderful anthology. I only wish I could get to one of the promo events...
